    The Gustavus Running Camp is a coed camp for runners in Grades 9-12 designed to broaden each athlete’s knowledge of running and motivate each person to perform his or her best, while coming away with the feeling of being a part of the team!

    Our camp is an overnight camp offering a 4 day/3 night option intended for beginners and a 5 day/4 night advanced program for high school. Our beginner camp is open to middle and high school runners. 

    Runners will work on all aspects of their sport including proper running form, training and racing techniques, dynamic warm-up and flexibility drills, injury prevention and identification, strenght training, cross training, goal setting and Steeple Chase.

    Special Features

    • Video Analysis - each camper will be filmed at least twice during camp to analyze running form; prior to any instruction or demonstration and again later in the week.
    • Campers will eat in the nationally recognized Gustavus dining service.
    • Camp Counselors will be Gustavus XC athletes/alumni
